A Modern Twist – Slat Fencing

Jan 15, 2015   //   by shm@rk   //   blog, Fencing Design Tips, Fencing News, News, Privacy Fencing, Timber Fencing  //  Comments Off on A Modern Twist – Slat Fencing

Slat fencing is the technique of using slats, or ‘planks’ of material to construct a fence or gate. The slats are measured equally apart allowing for air flow whilst still offering privacy. The installation of slat fencing around a property adds an instant modern element and can also make an area look bigger than it actually is.

So why are so many people choosing slat fencing for their homes?

  • A Modern Appearance: Having a professionally installed slat fence is the perfect way to compliment a newly built home or to modernise a renovated home. If well installed and maintained, a slat fence will never date.gates
  • Choice of materials: Although timber is the more popular choice for slat fencing, other materials including steel can also be used. This opens up a whole extra range of fencing allowing you to choose colour as well.
  • Appearance of space: Slat fencing is great for increasing the perception of space. With the measured gaps in between each slate, the surrounds are not completely blocked out allowing the illusion of more space.
  • Great Ventilation: Slat fencing is perfect for allowing air flow through not only your property, but your actual house as well.
  • Style: Slat fencing is perfect option to compliment an existing structure or frame different materials used for your fence.

Colourbond fencing is one of Australia’s most popular fencing choices and no city knows that more so than the city of Melbourne. The appeal of colourbond fencing is due to it’s reputation of delivering durable and versatile fencing options that can withstand the Australian climate.

The Evolution of Fences

Jun 13, 2014   //   by Kim Jones   //   Fencing, Fencing News, Privacy Fencing, Steel Fencing, Timber Fencing  //  Comments Off on The Evolution of Fences

Fences are a landmark of the suburban landscape. It is a simple structure that gives people privacy and security. Being the most basic division of property, the fence is such a constant part of everyday life that they just form part of the background. Not all fences are created equal, though; they’ve gone through a distinct evolution to become what we see today.

The first fences were meant to keep everything out. But, as new materials, building techniques and styles emerged, the fence took on a variety of forms.

Consider the most common fence types, starting from the dangerous barbed wire fences, the perfectly aligned white picket fences, and tall chain link fences. Each fence serves a similar purpose, keeping things out or in a certain boundary. Each fence, however, carries out the task in a different manner and presents a different image to the people outside.

Timber Fences

The Timber fence is one of the oldest and most popular fence types in the world. It is a no-nonsense and versatile structure and some people already consider it a wall.

Timber fences can be used on all boundaries and are visually pleasing from both sides.

Picket Fences

The picket fence is the smaller cousin of the timber fence. Though this type of fence is widely thought of as a part of the American Dream, they hardly have a claim on it. This type of fence is popular because it is the ultimate decorative barrier.

Marking property boundaries do not have to be a drudge; homeowners can use picket fences to add a little pep and class to their exterior spaces.

Chain Wire Fences

Chain wire fencing is the most simplistic and recognisable of all the fence types. Mostly used in metro environments, chain wire fences enforce security while allowing a full view of everything on the other side. This function proves perfect for containment where visuals are necessary.

Adding Extra Security to Your Garden

Sep 30, 2012   //   by Kim Jones   //   Privacy Fencing  //  Comments Off on Adding Extra Security to Your Garden

Keeping your garden areas secure is important, because apart from helping to prevent uninvited guests, your garden will often be connected to your house or garage, both of which may contain some of your most valuable assets. The following is a look at some of the easy ways you can make your garden areas more secure.

Increased lighting

Without enough lighting in your garden areas, it will be easy for someone to make use of the darkness to sneak right up to the edge of your house without being detected, making it far too easy for a potential intruder to get close to your place. By doing your best to increase the amount of lighting in your garden, you will be helping create a buffer zone around your home, as few criminals will want to risk coming through a well-lit area to get to your place.

Finding Holes in Your Home Security

Aug 30, 2012   //   by Kim Jones   //   Privacy Fencing  //  Comments Off on Finding Holes in Your Home Security

If you have any holes in your home’s security, you had better find them before an intruder does, because all it takes is one weak point and your entire system of defence can be undermined. The following features some tips on how to find any holes you might have in your home security, so do your part, find them and fix them, and make sure your home is properly protected.

Windows and doors

As far as break-ins are concerned, the most vulnerable parts of any home are the windows and doors, so if you are looking for holes in your home security, start by checking there. It is a good idea to provide some sort of security screen for those doors and windows on ground floor areas, or even invest in motion sensor alarms. Whatever you do, make sure your doors and windows are 100 per cent secure.
